Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal have succeeded in stealing a match on fellow table toppers Leicester City, according to reports.
The Daily Mail reported earlier reported that the Gunners are tracking Leicester City’s head of technical scouting; Ben Wrigglesworth but according to the Daily Telegraph; the Gunners have signed the highly rated football scout from the foxes.
Ben was credited with the capture of Leicester City’s in form winger Rihad Mahrez from Le Havre and now Mahrez has gone from being a relatively unknown player to one of the most sorts after winger in the Premier League.
Ben made Leicester City to secure his services from Le Havre; despite interest from Italian side Torino, Mahrez chose to join the English side due to the good works done by Ben Wrigglesworth.
Mahrez has gone on to be pivotal in Leicester City gaining promotion to the Premiership and also becoming Premier League title contenders this season.
Arsenal already boast of one of the best football scouting network in the world but the addition of Ben Wrigglesworth means more shrewd captures should be expected at the Emirates in subsequent transfers as Ben was also credited with the capture of N’Golo Kante from Caen in France
Wrigglesworth said on Twitter: “After three-and-a-half unbelievable seasons, working with amazing people, I am now starting a new chapter.
“It was a very difficult decision, leaving Leicester, but I had to take an opportunity that doesn’t come around often.
“I only wish the best for Leicester in the future, and will be eternally grateful to them for getting me to where I am.”
